Nurse who treated Manchester victim recognised at royal reception

  • Comment

A nurse who treated a victim of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in May has been thanked by members of the royal family as part of an event for staff who cared for victims.

Staff nurse Nicola Hardman, who works on the medical assessment unit at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary run by Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, met the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at Manchester Town Hall.

”I was exceptionally proud to represent Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust [at the reception]”

 Nicola Hardman

She was one of 25 NHS staff at the reception last month, alongside others including members of the Red Cross, representatives from Manchester City Council and leaders of faith groups.

Ms Hardman treated a patient who had been admitted to Royal Albert Edward Infirmary after a terrorist detonated a home-made bomb that killed 22 people at a pop concert on 22 May.

“I felt really special to have been chosen to attend and I was exceptionally proud to represent Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust,” said Ms Harman.
